Guest Star Goodness: Grey’s Anatomy “Adrift and at Peace”

I do not watch Grey’s Anatomy and, quite frankly, I forgot how good it can be. Back in the day I was all about the show but not so much for quite some time. What made me return for one episode, you ask? Mostly Daniel Sunjata and partly Scott Foley. So instead of picking a moment of goodness, I’ll talk about guest star goodness in this (mostly) strong episode. I totally cried, and that’s a very good thing. 

I like what’s going on with all the regulars, but that’s not what I’m here to talk about.  As I mentioned, I watched the episode because I heard Daniel Sunjata got a recurring role on the show. I worship him. I mean, have you seen Rescue Me? The first time he caught my eye was as a sailor on Sex and the City and he’s had it ever since. In this episode he plays Eli, a nurse Lexie is not particularly nice to and clearly doesn’t respect. She tries to go around him by recruiting both Sloane and Bailey to her cause, but with little results. In fact, his actions lead Bailey to declare she can cure fistula so clearly Lexie’s in the wrong here. Later Eli asks Bailey out on a date.

And what about Scott Foley? He’s really a bonus here because I had no idea he has an arc on the show. He’ll always be Noel from Felicity to me but more recently I’ve enjoyed him on Scrubs and Cougar Town (yes, I know he was on The Unit; I didn’t watch it). He plays Henry, a patient with a tumor whose medical insurance crapped out a while ago. Teddy wants to do something good for someone today, so she goes to Webber to try to get the hospital to cover his care. They can’t – or won’t – so Teddy offers to marry him. For the insurance, of course.
